Really enjoyed our stay here, the bed was so comfortable, after a sleepless night at our previous hotel in Christchurch, it was so good to be able to get a good nights sleep in Akaroa. I loved the privacy of the outdoor area, and the place was lovely and clean, very riendly and helpful owner.

First stop on our road trip around the Island and it proved a good choice. Nice modern upstairs unit with balcony and bonus Bell birds. Everything spotlessly clean with a modern feel. Only stayed one night but it certainly served its purpose. Brisk walking distance of the town proper, everything is accessible. Trevor (a Taranaki native) was friendly and helpful. Only negative comment would be the price, it seemed expensive when compared with the rest of our trip but that may be just an Akaroa thing, which I imagine is fairly popular. Nice dinner in the Maderia Hotel, just down the road, seperate review.

Very nice friendly hosts welcomed us and the apartment was spacious and in a good position, a short walk to nearby restaurants and a pleasant walk along the water's edge to the main village area. I recommend this place

We had a very nice two night stay at La Rochelle Motel. The room was a good size and very clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. The small area outside our room (#5, ground floor) was lovely. Trevor our host was great, very friendly and helpful. The motel is in a great location and we would stay there again if we return to Akaroa.

We received a wonderful welcome from Trevor. He was very friendly. The unit was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our short stay. A short walk to all that Akaroa has to offer. Would definitely stay here again.
